Badger baseball played a tournament against Pleasonton March 4. They lost 12-1. Their next game is against Fairfield at home tomorrow. 

Head baseball coach Chance Evans expected the games to be extremely competitive and planned a schedule to prepare for district.

We have been focusing our practices on fundamentals and routine plays,” Evans said. “We’re trying to just do simply better.” 

Players trained intensively prior to the game, working on drills and honing their skills. 

Every year in this profession you learn something new,” Evans said. “New drills, new ways of teaching, new information, and you do your best to make sure you’re giving the best information to your players that you can give them. Experience and ability to adapt to change is key to coaching.” 

Evans said the team’s biggest issue is inexperience.

“But how we overcome this is by understanding what it takes to be successful,” he said.

Evans instructs his team to focus on practice to hone skills in future games. 

“I know my team did their best,” junior Landon Baker said. “We’ll continue to practice.”
